The census has to be an actual count of America's citizens... not just an estimate based on a statistical sample.

The three federal judges who heard arguments here in Roanoke a couple of weeks ago... today rejected the Clinton Administration's plan to use estimates in the year 2000.
The decision is a strict interpretation of the Constitution which calls for an "actual enumeration" of the populace.
A number of special interest groups urged the court to allow the sampling technique.

But the court says that's not what the nation's founding fathers intended.[Goodview-fire]

Timber Lake residents are still paying back a million dollar loan they floated to repair the dam and rebuild the lake.
But not all of the property owners in the subdivision contributed to that repair bill, costing those who DID an extra hundred thousand dollars.
Now some residents want to form a "Watershed Improvement District" that would give them the power to tax themselves to finance future repairs and maintenance.
